Street Fighting Rages In Saigon
SAIGON Bloody street tfighHing raged in Saigon Friday
night, U.S. Marines battled North Vietnamese troops in house-to-house
combat in Hue and at least three key province capitals in
the South Vietnamese countryside were reported partially con
quered by Communist armies.
Battle casualties climbed steadily in the biggest and boldest
Communist offensive of the war, and the dead and maimed in
cluded thousands of civilians, both 'American and South Viet
namese. Saigon headquarters reported more than 11,000 North Viet
namese and Viet Cong killed since 6 p.m. Monday when the Com
munist offensive started. Allied losses were placed at about one
tenth of the number of Communist dead.
New Offensive A Failure-LBJ
WASHINGTON President Johnson Friday termed the Viet
Cong attacks on major South Vietnamese cities "a complete
failure" militarily and said they would force no change in
American troop levels or basic war strategy.
No great new over-all moves are going to be made," he said,
but cautioned: "Anything can happen on a. moment's notice."
In an informal meeting with newsmen in the White House
cabinet room near his office, Johnson also said that when the
dust settles, it will appear that
score a psychological victory.
He said the guerrilla raids were the "general uprising" phase
of a plan by North Vietnamese leader Ho Chi Minn to overthrow
the Saigon government and lead the way to a Communist -dominated
coalition government.
U.S., Russian Vessels Collide
WASHINGTON The Defense Department disclosed Friday
that a U.S. destroyer and a Soviet frieghlter collided in the Sea of
Japan - the fourth such incident in 9 months in the same waters
where the USS Pueblo was seized by North Korea.
UJ9. officials claimed the earlier collisions were deliberate
harassment by -the Soviets, but Navy officers indicated the latest
incident appeared to be an accident. But the Soviet Union did not
share that view and delivered a protest to the U.S. embassy in
There were no casualties and only minor damage when the
two ships brushed in the Sea of Japan early Wednesday, the
Defense Department said.
Involved were the USS Rowan and the merchant ship
Some Diet Pills May Be Banned

was ready to ban the manufacture and sale of diet pills that con

It was originally announced
that Alexander would be used
to house the women students
who would be forced out of .
According to Wadsworth, the
law students in Alexander will
be moved to Craige which is
nearer the new law building.
All Craige undergraduates, ex- :
cept rising seniors, will be -t

Wadsworth stated, will have
top priority on rooms for fall
semester, and Craige un- ;

He noted that residents of
rooms in other dorms will not
be moved unles they requet
to be shifted elsewhere.
Alexander was converted .
this year to house law
students, along with several
Highway Patrol trainees.
John Gresham, governor of
Scott College, said none of the
residents of the college knew
of the change in the Parker's
status until officers were, told
by the administration.
He added there was nothing
that could be done to stop the

vigorously than did the others,
producing the will of the late
James Pleasant Mason which

SG Gets $2,550 Sears Grant

received $2550 grant from the
Sears and Roebuck Foundation
to sponsor a leadership
training program, according to
Seeking shelter is the name of the game. It's played here by two
of Carolina's 15,000 students who put The Daily Tar Heel to use
as a portable canopy to avoid the rain drops which pelted Chapel
Hill Friday. The rain, which began Thursday night, was the first
to mar the relatively nice weather that prevailed the first wee',
of Spring Semester. It's too early to say, though, whether Chapel
Hill's annual monsoon has begun: only time and the rain-guage
will tell.

that she could "see no direct

Kills UNC-G
'Open Halls'
Special to The Daily Tar Heel
passed by the UXC-G Student
L egislature permitting up
perclass coeds to live in "open
halls" without closing hours
has been vetoed by Chanceucr
James S. Ferguson.
The bill, passed cn
December 5 proposed a
magnetic key-card system
similar to that proposed as a
means of eliminating closing
hours for Senior Women at the
Chapel Hill campus.
The Greensboro chancellor
did approve, however, a bill to
extend UNC-G closing hours.
As of Friday the coeds there
have a 12 p.m. curfew on
weeknights, 1 a.m. on Friday
and Sunday nights, and 2 a.m.
on Saturdays.
In his statement to the UNC
G Student Legislature, Dr.
Ferguson said that no closing
hours would "hamper the safe
ty & security of the students,"
and that such a policy would
have an adverse effect on
group living.
